Kanye West's

'Runaway' Video

30 Minutes of WTF?

10/24/2010 9:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

So Kanye West put out a 30+ minute preview music video for his upcoming album -- and in it he seems to fall in love with this bird woman who fell from the sky, but people judge her, so she flies back to wherever she came from. And in the middle there's a dinner party.

This guy can't sing. Seriously - his voice is awful. As much as I dislike autotune, I don't think anyone would object with its use here.

Nice to see ballet dancers in something. There must be some point behind all of this...like Edward Sissorhands.

I'm not a fan of Kanye and definitely don't listen to his music but his actions, IMO, are those of a person who is out of their mind(SERIOUSLY). A lot of people say he does it for attention, but I think the dude is crazy for real.

Even I'm not a big fan of Kanye BUT Wow! I watched the entire video, and even i thought it was pretty freakin amazing. It's kinda like a play, so no you're not going to see the best graphic with the costumes. And the music was really awesome. People who say "omg lik i culdnt watch it it suks fo sho!" You're an idiot! Forget what happened with the whole Taylor Swift thing. The guy has major talent. He's definitely one of a kind. Nice job Kanye! You gained a new fan. As for Taylor Swift, with her "breakup" songs about 20 different boyfriends. Girl, you NEED to slow down! It's not necessary to have a boyfriend every two seconds and then be completely heart broken about each and every one. i mean come on, really? I'm sure the first couple were strictly hand holding relationships anyway, unless she slept with every single one of them then, girl needs to close her legs.

Over 30 minutes of glorified nursery rhyme Karaoke, this is torture! Kanye is pure garbage overrated just like Jay Z and Lil Wayne, how come no here knows who Mike Patton is? Mike Patton has more talent than all 3 combined!

I really liked Kanye when he came onto the scene. The the whole Talor Swift thing really turned me off to him and I couldn't listen to his music for a while.

But there is no denying it, he is a true Artist and I am sorry for being so judgemental!

It's unfortunate that Kanye is not a cool as he thinks he is. The music is ok, the video is self indulgent and ridiculous....which means its a perfect fit for Kanya. What a waste of money at the end of the day.

If its originality that is actually cool...maybe he should try calling Prince for some advice. Kanye is nothing more than typical...what's next??? will he start trying to look like Mr. T?
